Keep Anxiety Away

Anxiety is a hassle to a peaceful life. Here are some ways of keeping clear of it.

Anxiety is brought about by chaotic thoughts. Sometimes you think too much because of the things you have to do. The excessive mental clutter can turn you into a nervous wreck and might make you do and say things that you might regret later. The answer to this problem is to have peace of mind. Here are some tips that can help you rid yourself of all those nervous tension. These tips, as they say, are too simple that they might just work.

Before you rid yourself of mental clutter, get rid of visual clutter first. A clutter free environment is the key to a clutter free mind. Keep your work area clutter free and just have the immediate essentials that you need. Those you do not need, keep them in a drawer or a cabinet out of sight. Have a place for everything and put everything in its place. Organize the things you need to do and list them according to priority. Finish one task at a time so that you won’t be jumping back and forth between tasks.

Keep your home clutter free as well. It is refreshing to come home to a clean house where you don’t have to think of washing dishes or cleaning up dirty clothes. Use the principle “clean as you go” to avoid the piling up of house chores. As simple as washing the dishes after eating or putting up the toilet seat goes a long way. When you go home to a clean house, all you need to do is put on some soothing music and have dinner and watch TV before going to sleep.

Do something relaxing at the end of the day. Jog around the park or have a nice long bath, don’t be guilty for these simple pleasures. You deserve it after a hard days’ work. After doing weekend chores, get a massage or spa treatment. For women, a day at a beauty parlor is therapeutic. You can get the latest gossip while getting your nails or your hair done. This will boost your self esteem when you see how pretty you are.

Aside from keeping yourself look good, it is also important to keep yourself healthy. Always eat a balanced diet and do not skip meals. If you are doing strenuous physical labor, don’t scrimp on your carbohydrates as they are the main source of energy. Eat moderately and don’t binge on alcohol and cigarettes. Avoid things that you know are bad for you like drugs.

Don’t forget your friends and family. They are the roots that you come home to whenever you get wounded and need to lick your wounds. An occasional email or phone call goes a long way to keeping these ties alive.

And lastly, be kind to yourself. You are not perfect and are apt to make mistakes. Don’t beat yourself too much about it. Learn from these mistakes, fix it and don’t repeat them again. But there’s not need to punish yourself forever.
